 I was very proud of this at the time: I intended to swap off all White's good pieces and win the a-pawn. That's actually what happended! 18. Bc3 Rhc8 19. Nb1 Bxc3+ 20. Rxc3 Rxc3 21. Nxc3 Qb4 22.

 BEST?: warcs. vs devon (county 1/4 final), 1995

 1. e4 g6 2. d4 d6 This move order is designed to stop White playing his next move! 3. c4 e5 4. d5 Bh6 ? Strategically brilliant but tactically a joke. 5. Nd2 [5. Bxh6 Nxh6 6. Qd2 Qh4 7. Nc3 f5 8. g3 Qh5 9. Be2] 5... Nf6 6. Bd3 Na6 7. Ngf3 Nc5 8. Bc2 a5 9. b3 Nh5 10. g3 O-O 11. Bb2 Qe8 12. a3 f5
